Say She She Return With “C’est Si Bon”A Discodelic Love Letter To The Global Dance Floor
Major Summer Tour Starts June 10 at Central Park Summerstage, Includes Glastonbury + Hollywood Bowl Debuts
June 8, 2023 -- Say She She has returned with a new single today called “C’est Si Bon,” a discodelic love letter to the global dance floor. Part Parisian playground, part 90’s LA shopping mall glamor, with an enchanting explosion of 1970’s downtown New York and the gutter glitter of London nightlife - it’s a revitalizing summer anthem to seize the day and make your time count.
The single - which debuted on BBC6’s Lauren Laverne program - arrives on the heels of a break-out year for Say She She that grows brighter by the day. They have just announced their Don’t You Dare Stop Tour, which launches at Central Park Summerstage’s 2023 season opening night this Saturday June 10. The 35-date international run goes into September and includes major festivals including their Glastonbury debut, and historic venues including Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles with Portugal. The Man.
The group made their national TV debut on CBS Saturday in January, and performed at a sold-out Brooklyn Steel with Thee Sacred Souls earlier this year as part of an east coast winter tour with the Daptone soul band. Say She She’s debut album, Prism (Karma Chief Records/Colemine), was released last fall and celebrated by NPR Music, LA Times, 5 stars from The Guardian, WNYC, Brooklyn Magazine, Ones To Watch and MOJO, calling the album “a joyous overload of joyful elation and spiritual elevation.” Prism hit #1 on KCRW’s Top 30 Albums and Best of 2022 lists, plus sessions and significant spins from several tastemaker radio stations across the country including KEXP, WFUV, including last year’s annual Holiday Cheer event at the Beacon Theater, and WXPN, including a recent World Cafe Live performance at the Non Comm Convention.

“Say She She beckons you to throw your hands up and declare your heart’s desires.
Tell them what you want!
The time will soon be gone.
When all is said and done
The world keeps spinning on…”
“C’est Si Bon” was produced by Sergio Rios, and follows “Reeling,” a new single that dropped in January. The single was #1 in KCRW’s Top 10 charts, was playlisted at BBC’s 6 Music and the 45 (w/ “Don’t You Dare Stop”) charted in the Top 20 Vinyl Charts in the UK.
Say She She is Piya Malik (staple El Michels Affair feature, and former backing singer for Chicano Batman), Sabrina Mileo Cunningham and Nya Gazelle Brown, named as a silent nod to Nile Rodgers (C’est chi-chi!: It's Chic!”). This trio of three strong harmonizing voices was formed in a classic New York tale of friends that met by following the music: the downtown dancefloors, through the Lower East Side floorboards and up to the rooftops of Harlem. They’ve collaborated with members of The Dap-Kings, The Extraordinaires, Peanut Butter Wolf, The Shacks and Chicano Batman. Their current band plays as a seven piece and includes members of Los Angeles cult-funk band Orgone, who they are touring with extensively this year.
